    In political science and law-related programs at Carlow you'll study power and its impact on the relationship between citizens and their government. You will examine issues of control, freedom, gender, and influence as you study and assess how power and authority has impacted the development of societies, relations among nations, and the management of war and conflict.

    The department of political science houses the major and minor in political science and the minors in public policy and leadership, and pre-law. The department also advises students in pre-law, graduate and professional study in political science and public policy, as well as internship placement and programming related to careers in government, law, and public policy.
